Nightmare Runner: 10

2012-06-07 13:06:41 by Xadian

???, 2012

I remember everything now. I remember that my name is John Airen. I remember growing up in Tennessee, on a little backwoods farm with a pig and a goat and a cow. Strangely, my accent's gone now.

I remember the invasion. The invasion by the elder and outer gods. Who'd have thought Lovecraft was on to something?

I remember the day they freed Cthulhu from his watery prison, the day he destroyed a small country. On a whim. I remember them razing the cities of the world to the ground. Killing millions. I remember the rest of us being enslaved, forced to compete for the "right" to entertain them. I remember being picked for their sick "eternal" game. A game where we were transported to "their" dimension. An eldritch plane of existence, where our only fate was to run that insane "course" over and over again, while they watch from this dimension. It seems I am the first to succeed. The first to come back.

They were waiting at the exit. Too many for me to fight, and besides, I doubt I'm still immortal. They took my gun. Threw me in this stinking prison, guarded by that thing, that squid faced humanoid. But it's not enough. I can still see my gun. It's lying right there. They either don't know about my powers, or don't care. After all, what's one man against a council of gods?

I'm going to do it. I'm going to kill that thing, get my gun, and escape this prison. And I will continue to fight.

Just as I did in that eldritch world.


Commentary: Yep. That's it. Two weeks in the making and it's over.

I'd like to thank the approximately two people who encouraged me to write this. Or at least said to keep doing it. And of course, I must thank Javier Lazaro for making an amazing game that occupied a couple hours of my life.

I've heard from Mr. Lazaro that there IS going to be a sequel. Hopefully, if I can find a way to not just be rehashing this story, I'll ask him for permission to write a sequel to this later on.

All in all, I rather liked writing like this, in the form of newgrounds posts. I write in much the same way on my blog, but it's also a much longer process as most of the posts are longer than this entire story has been. It's been nice to just take something slow and let it develop itself.

Now I get to go through and copy and paste everything to Open Office so I can post it to my blog. >_<


All stories are by me. Nightmare Runner is by Javier Lazaro.

Later, internet.
